Background information and notes

  • The episode was ripped from the headlines, being based on the Kazuyoshi Miura and Charles Stuart cases. Miura was a Japanese businessman who arranged for the murder of his wife in Los Angeles, California, which also involved him being shot in the leg; he was motivated by collecting life insurance. Stuart personally murdered his pregnant wife, shot himself in the stomach, and claimed that a black man did the shootings during a robbery gone wrong; he was also motivated by collecting life insurance.
